How does your company view technology investments? Do you see technology as a strategic investment or an expense? Technology can provide your company with a strategic advantage if you understand how to harness it.
Here are the three key ways to invest in IT strategically:
1) Serve Customers Better
Customer delight results from finding better ways to serve customers and that can often be facilitated by technology. For example, making the process to use your service much simpler and intuitive can help you keep more of your current customers and get them telling others about your service.
2) Reduce Costs
Automation can help you reduce costs for your product or service while improving accuracy and scalability. The important thing to remember is that you need a good understanding of your current processes and how to optimize them first before automation can be a real benefit for you.
3) Get Actionable Information Faster
Business intelligence is the term used to describe the process of getting actionable data more quickly for your business. When you manage your resources by using real-time key performance indicators (KPIs), you get a competitive advantage over competitors who need to wait for month-end data to make adjustments to their marketing or operations strategies.
So if you are willing to invest the time and effort into understanding how technology can provide a competitive advantage, you can be rewarded with a significant competitive advantage against your direct competitors.
